October 2021: We’re celebrating Stephen King
With over 350 million copies of his books sold worldwide, he’s been crowned the king of horror – and we feel like that needs to be celebrated! October will get a little creepier at the NCPL as we devote a whole month of programs to the one and only Stephen King. We hope you will join us – if you dare!
